A family favourite. The Guiness mellows during the cooking to produce a yummy gravy. I do like Queen Dragon Mum's idea of adding the molasses if you don't like prunes as that takes the edge off the Guiness too.
This is a super fast pizza crust I fall back on when there is absolutely no time. It makes a thick doughy crust. I top it with a jar of spaghetti sauce, shredded mozzarella, and veggies for a quick and reasonably healthy meal the kids will eat! Modified from "500 Fat Free Recipes"
The Irish butcher at my market gave me a new (to me anyway) recipe for corned beef & cabbage; he told me to cook it in Guinness Draught. (Guinness stout will make the dish bitter). Since everyone raved about it, I thought I'd share the recipe he gave me.
Note: Some reviewers have mentioned that the broth/sauce is very salty. It is important to rinse your corned beef in cold water before cooking it to remove some of the excess salt from the corning process. (I usually soak mine in cold water for a bit depending on the brand - some are much saltier than others). --- I have tried 5 times today to change the wording of the last ingredient on the list from "1-2lbs carrot, peeled and cut into 3-inch pieces" to "1 - 2 pounds of carrots, peeled and cut into 3-inch pieces". Every time the change "goes through," it does not reflect the new wording. Grrrrrrr!
A traditional Irish stew, as handed down by my grandmother, who was born and raised and is now buried in Bangor, Co. Down, Ulster. This recipe has been modified slightly, as indicated in my comment below. This is a good, hearty stew, whcih is excellent fare anytime there's "a chill in the air."
I have not yet tried this, but it is from an overdue library book (From Our Mothers' Kitchens) and I want to return the book tomorrow, so need to get the recipes I want to try copied down, pronto. Beer breads are always great to serve with chili, soup or stews, and this one, with the addition of the cheddar and the onion rings on top, sounds terrific.
I thought this cake was very good, but then, I'm a date-lover. The cake is spicy, though not overpowering in my opinion. The texture of the cake is fairly light. Credit goes to the Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking.
